Lieber Evelin Lindner,
Leider musste ich viel zu früh zum Zug rennen.
Leider, denn ich hätte gerne noch mehr mit Ihnen gesprochen, die wichtigsten Fragen sind mir dann erst auf der Reise eingefallen.
Was mich (unter anderem) fasziniert an Ihnen, ist dieses persönliche Engagement, das bis zum Körpereinsatz (Haare) geht und eigentlich in totalem Widerspruch zum Verhalten "normaler" Wissenschafter steht, die genau das machen, was Sie im ersten Satz skizziert haben: Bis hier geht das Leben, dann kommt der Vortrag (sachlich, wissenschaftlich, unpersönlich)und anschliessend geht das Leben weiter.
Diese ganze andere Haltung, nämlich der Versuch, Leben zu teilen, ist für mich das Wesentliche an Ihrer Message.
...
Ich denke, ich weiss jetzt auch, warum Sie so viel wert darauf legen, zu sagen, dass Sie überall zu Hause sind. Weil Sie wollen, dass alle Menschen überall zu Hause sind....oder wenigstens so aufgenommen werden. Alte Vorstellung von Gastfreundschaft, alte Vorstellung von der fliessenden Liebe, die nicht ein Gut ist, das man nur Einzelnen schenkt (möglichst gut verpackt), sondern immer gerade dort fliessen lässt, wo man ist, gegenüber jedem Menschen, auch den weniger "liebenswürdigen" .
Sehen Sie, Sie wirken inspirierend und haben einmal mehr einen Volltreffer gelandet.
Die Moderation war für mich eine grosse Freude.
Mit ganz herzlichen Grüssen
Peter Rothenbühler

Liebe Frau Lindner
Ich sehe, Sie sind schon wieder früh aktiv!
Ja, ich habe den Anlass auch sehr gelungen gefunden - es war das erste Mal in diesem Rahmen - und auch die Musik war hervorragend! ...
Für Ihre Arbeit wünsche ich Ihnen herzlich viel Erfolg! Das Engagement ist Teil von Ihrer Person und wird immer zu Ihnen gehören, denke ich. Wo ich kann, werde ich in meine Kontakte den Hinweis auf Ihre Arbeit einfliessen lassen.
Nun hoffe ich, dass Sie noch etwas Zürich geniessen können!
Ihre Ulrike Zöllner

liebe Evelin Lindner
Auch Ihnen herzlichen Dank für das Mail, für Ihre Arbeit die sie leisten, sie ist unentbehrlich, gerade in der heutigen Zeit und ich bin immer wieder froh und hoffnungsvoll, wenn ich Menschen wie Sie kennenlerne, die sich für die Humanität einsetzen, die die Auswirkungen von Demütigung und Erniedrigung klar definieren und deren Auswirkungen aufzeigen und auch nach Lösungsansetzen suchen. ...
Es freut und ehrt mich sehr, dass sie meine Rede berührt hat. Es fällt mir nicht schwer zu diesem Thema zu sprechen, weil es mich selber eben auch sehr berührt...
liebe Grüsse
emy lalli

Liebe Frau Lindner
Ich möchte mich sehr herzlich bei Ihnen bedanken für Ihren Vortrag an der ETH. Sie haben mich sehr beeindruckt. Das Thema ist ja tückenreich. Man meint, man wisse sofort, worum es geht, und von daher besteht die Gefahr, dass man zur Tagesordnung übergeht und die vielfältigen Erscheinungen in unserem täglichen Leben entweder übersieht oder achselzuckend als gegeben hinnimmt. Sie demonstrieren, dass die Ermittlung der Gründe und der Auswirkungen der Demütigung einer wissenschaftlichen Vertiefung bedarf, wenn es gelingen soll, das Übel an der Wurzel zu packen und einen effektiven Beitrag zum Frieden zu leisten.
Ich habe vor Jahren einmal an einer amerikanischen Universität studiert. Ihre mitreissende und direkte Art des Lehrens, die intensive Kommunikation mit den Zuhörern und das Entwickeln eines Themas scheinbar aus dem Nichts haben mich spontan an jene Zeit erinnert. Ich kann mir lebhaft vorstellen, wie Sie Leute für Ihre Sache begeistern.
Ich wollte Ihnen noch von einer interessanten Querverbindung berichten. Einer meiner Lehrer im Verfassungsrecht, Herr Prof. Dr. Jörg Paul Müller, hat kürzlich in Zürich einen Vortrag gehalten, in welchem es um die Verbindungen zwischen der Psychologie und der Jurisprudenz im Zusammenhang mit sozialen Konflikten ging. Müller erwähnte ebenfalls (wie Sie) das Beispiel Südafrikas, um zu zeigen, dass die Wiedergutmachung begangenen Unrechts unter Umständen eines innovativen Ansatzes bedarf, in dessen Zentrum nicht (nur) die Vergeltung (und, so würde ich jetzt ergänzen, die Erwiderung einer Demütigung mit einer neuen Demütigung), sondern der Einbezug der ‚Parteien’ in einen Friedensprozess steht. In der Tat: die Anwendung des Strafrechts muss bei grossen sozialen Auseinandersetzungen meistens scheitern, weil die Täter nur selektiv erfasst werden können, die grosse schweigende Mehrheit, welche ein ungerechtes System unterstützt, ungeschoren davon kommt, und die Opfer ausgeblendet bleiben. Die Nürnberger und späteren Naziprozesse in Deutschland sind dafür ebenso Beleg wie das Kriegsverbrechertribunal für Ex-Jugoslawien. Damit soll nicht gesagt sein, die strafrechtliche Aufarbeitung sei überflüssig; sie ist aber ungenügend und kann die nachhaltige ‚Befriedung’ sogar gefährden, weil sie als bequemer Ersatz für einen langwierigen Friedensprozess ‚missbraucht’ werden kann.
Ich werde Sie und Ihren Vortrag in Erinnerung behalten. Und ich werde versuchen, Ihre Anliegen meinen Mitmenschen nahe zu bringen.
Mit freundlichen Grüssen
Beat Messerli

Sehr geehrte Frau Lindner
vor wenigen Tagen hatte ich die Ehre, an Ihrer Preisverleihung in Zürich teilzunehmen. Eine Freundin hatte mich dazu eingeladen, ich wusste nicht, was mich erwartete.
Ihre flammend leidenschaftliche Rede und die Art, wie Sie verschiedene thematische Ansätze zu einem wunderbaren Teppich verknüpften, hinterliessen mich sprachlos und begeistert.
Möge Ihr Feuer nie verlöschen, Ihr Mut nie schwinden, Ihre Freude nie versiegen, solange die Erde Sie trägt.
Während ich Ihnen zuhörte, fühlte ich die tiefe Freude und Ermutigung, die mich immer dann erfüllen, wenn ich auf Menschen treffe, die auf ihre ganz eigene, kraftvolle Weise dazu beitragen, den Kurs dieses globalen Schiffes von der vermeintlichen Katastrophe in eine neue Richtung zu lenken ...
Auch ich bin Ärztin, habe aber vor drei Jahren aufgehört, in der Klinik zu arbeiten. Das Thema von Krankheit und Genesung hat sich von der Ebene des menschlichen Körpers auf den Körper dieses Planeten verlagert, das ist alles.
Ich wünsche Ihnen nur das Beste, möchte mich noch einmal für Ihren Vortrag bedanken und grüße Sie herzlich,
Franziska Bolt

Dear Evelin,
I am so happy and excited about the 2006 Award for Applied Psychology you will receive from the Swiss Association of Applied Psychology! You certainly deserve this honor for all the reasons cited by the President of the SBAP.
I am so proud of you, as I am sure all your friends are, especially those who have been able to be involved in your Human Dignity and Humiliation studies and advocacy. Indeed, you are an internationally known, committed and sincere advocate for humanity and peace. You are an exceptional woman who has dedicated her talents and her whole person to bring about the transformation and healing of our wounded society through respect for human dignity and the worth of every individual.
Congratulations!
With all my heart,
Lourdes

Dear Evelin,
You certainly have my permission to accept the honor described below on our behalf, but the truth is that you are a very special person and deserve this award yourself. You are also modest, also, which is unusual in a person with two doctorates. I am sure that everyone who participates in the Human Dignity and Humiliation Studies Network will be happy to spiritually stand beside you as you accept this award, as a way of saying thank you (to you) for allowing us to become part of your extended circle of colleagues. May we all encourage the spirit of caring, in whatever circles we travel.
Love and blessings,
Dennis

Dear Evelin
This prize to you and, thus, to the Human Dignity and Humiliation Studies Network is an indication that there is still some justice in the world. No one could deserve that better than you, pioneering as you have one of the most important but neglected fields in social sciences.
I hope this will lend you strength to go on researching and disseminating materials on the terribly important relationships between humiliation on the one hand and war, terrorism and other types of violence on the other.
I am of course particularly happy for you getting this Prize since you are also a TFF Associate. Let's have even more co-operation in the years to come.
I would love to be among those who celebrate you in Zurich. But I never know where I am that much in advance...
Congratulation and a big hug from Christina too and

Dear Evelin,
What wonderful news!
I am really VERY glad that your are getting such a precious recognition of your work!
It must be double joy for you given the personal sacrifices you have made in order to pursue your challenges.
Applied psychology,- for peace. I love it.
When you think of it, the world is packed with excellent books and studies produced by brilliant minds,
outlining great ideas and analyses. And so much of it remains exactly that,  ideas and analyses that are never applied.
Some times I almost feel like a weirdo when applying social psychology in conflict contexts.
All this knowledge that is there for the taking, and the conflict community does not even know about it.
So yes, "applied psychology, a significant contribution",
I love the sound of it.
Congratulations!!
All the best

Thank you for sharing this delightfully wonderful news with all of us concerning this precious award. This is such a marvelous invitation, one that you so deserve for this amazing work on humiliation. Your work is so invaluable to our ever changing world, like a pearl in a vast ocean of violence! You, dear Evelin have found this pearl and soothe this turbulent ocean of violence with a vision of hope!
As a part of your work I take very little credit for the compassion, strength and hopefulness you have given to those who suffer humiliation. Yet I am honored to hold your hand and walk beside you on this precious journey. I am confident that if I am only privileged to stand in the shadow of your dreams I would have fulfilled my destiny. Thank you dear Evelin for providing such a passionate ray of sunlight to my own dim vision of social change. You are such a dear person whose heart is filled with so much humility and love for others... I am happy to share this space in time with you as we go on into better future together.
